Obituary for Karen J. Doody

Karen Janice (Jezbera) Doody, 82, of Waterford, formerly Burlington, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on August 4, 2019 at Oak Park Place in Burlington, WI. Karen was born on July 5, 1937 to Otto and Mabel Jezbera in Chicago, Illinois. She later moved to Burlington, Wisconsin where she spent much of her life.

Karen found great pleasure in being at the lake, traveling, and dining out with loved ones (when she wasn’t preparing delicious home cooked meals for them). She had an eye for fashion and design, and she adored her pets (as well as animals in general). Fresh flowers put a smile on her face and were abundant on her patio and throughout her home. More than anything, Karen loved spending time with her family. She was a caring, generous individual and a loving mother, grandmother, and GG (great-grandma).

Survivors include her children; Bob (Jane) Doody, Kim (Tony) Seibert; grandchildren, Christin (Ryan) Johnson, Ashley (Jack) Schmidt, Kelly (Jesse) Burgin, Jennifer Doody; great-grandchildren Avery and Kendall Johnson, Whitney and Wells Schmidt. Karen was preceded in death by her loving parents, Mabel and Otto Jezbera.

Private family services will be held. Memorials, in honor of Karen, may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association. Special thanks to Karen’s caregivers at Oak Park Place Burlington Memory Care.
